This week you read the very controversial Obergefell v Hodges. We are going to be doing our forum discussion a little differently.

To spark an interesting and balanced discussion on the Obergefell case, I would like Megan, Jamie, Lenora, Audrey and Mike to post an initial post that defends the state laws in question. Simply put, for those of you who will be defending the state laws, you will be arguing that same-sex marriages conducted in other states should not be recognized and that the states which prohibited same-sex marriage should not be required to perform such marriages. For Lynnette, Adrianne, Greg, Alex, Shanele and Kade, please post an initial post that challenges the state laws in question.
